Ratiometric DNA sensing with a host–guest FRET pair

Author affiliations

Abstract

A supramolecular host–guest FRET pair based on a carboxyfluorescein-labelled cucurbit[7]uril (CB7-CF, as acceptor) and the fluorescent dye 4′,6-diamidino-2-phenylindole (DAPI, as donor) is developed for sensing of DNA. In comparison to the commercial DNA staining dye SYBR Green I, the new chemosensing ensemble offers dual-emission signals, which allows a linear ratiometric response over a wide concentration range.
